Faking It??

Do you think James Holmes, the accused Aurora killer, is faking it?

I am not a doctor, but seeing enough of these type guys, I kinda got a feel for real insanity vs fakers, as well as the emotionally disturbed ones.

I think he's faking it, because -

*They said his college studies included psychiatry and behavioral sciences, so he knows a lot about this stuff.

*He's doing too many "crazy" things;
-When arrested they put paper bags on his hands to preserve gun powder residue evidence he used them like hand puppets.

-He now claims amnesia, and everything I've ever read says amnesia is extremely rare and usually the result of shock from fear and traumatic experiences or from head injuries.

-He was reported spitting at the guards in the county jail.

-His odd, distracted, distanced, and even bored behavior in court the other day.
-The account that a week before he was drinking at a local bar and seemed completely lucid.

*I have seen all of these behaviors at one time or another, but never from one person.


I remember one, "for real" insane person specifically, and as crazy as he is, he exhibited some of these things but never all of them.

Do you think he is faking it?

Well, sometimes you eat the bear, and sometimes, well, he eats you, so the Dude must abide!

Either way, he deserves the chair, or injenction, or firing squad, or hanging, or all of the above.

Shoot straight

People are sick of politicians, and me, I hate cats in the house.

Re: Faking It??

Tie him up and let the family members of those who died get their revenge. Either way it results in one thing... him being dead

Re: Faking It??

I'd say he is. But he has to be either straight evil or messed In the head to do this.

Re: Faking It??

DENVER — The former graduate student accused in the deadly Colorado movie theater shooting <span style="font-weight: bold">was being treated by a psychiatrist at the university where he studied, according to court papers filed Friday.</span>
Defense attorneys for James Holmes, 24, made the disclosure in a court motion. It sought to discover the source of leaks to some media outlets that Holmes sent the psychiatrist a package containing a notebook with descriptions of an attack.

We know what the defense will be!

The motion said the leak violated a judge's gag order and jeopardized Holmes' right to a fair trial.

"The government's disclosure of this confidential and privileged information has placed Mr. Holmes' constitutional rights to due process and a fair trial by an impartial jury in serious jeopardy," wrote the attorneys.

The motion added that the package contained communications between Holmes and his psychiatrist that should be shielded from public view. The document describes Holmes as a "psychiatric patient" of Dr. Lynne Fenton.

Calls to Holmes' lawyer, Daniel King, were referred to the head of the Colorado State Public Defender's office, Douglas Wilson, who was out of the office and did not immediately return a message seeking comment.

A message left with Fenton's office was not immediately returned. The University of Colorado's website identifies her as the medical director of the school's Student Mental Health Services.

Casmir Spencer, a spokeswoman for the Arapahoe County District Attorney's office, said she could not comment.

The package was seized by authorities on Monday after it was discovered in the mailroom at the University of Colorado, Denver. It's unclear if it was sent before the attack at the July 20 midnight showing of "The Dark Knight Rises" that left 12 dead and dozens of others injured.

Authorities said Holmes legally purchased four guns before the attack at Denver-area sporting goods stores — a semiautomatic rifle, a shotgun and two pistols. To buy the guns, Holmes had to pass background checks that can take as little as 20 minutes in Colorado.

State law bars from purchasing firearms people who have been found mentally defective by a judge or have been committed to a mental institution. The statute makes no restrictions on buyers who are being treated for possible mental illness.

Holmes spent a year as a graduate student in the university's intimate, competitive neuroscience program before dropping out without explanation three days after taking a year-end final, university officials have said.

They have refused to disclose more about Holmes, citing the judge's gag order on law enforcement agencies.

At a press conference earlier this week, they acknowledged that students in the program that Holmes studied in are carefully monitored. They said a graduate student experiencing problems would normally be referred to student support services.
